If you've lost some or all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay, or injury, complete or partial dentures can be used to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile. Replacing missing teeth is critical not only to your appearance and self-confidence, but to your health as well. A complete set of teeth allows you to eat a varied diet full of wholesome, delicious foods, ensuring the continued health of your entire body. Without support from teeth or a denture, the muscles of the face begin to sag, making a person appear older than they really are. Eating, speaking, and looking your best become possible again with dentures and partials to replace missing teeth.
Understanding Different Types of Dentures
There are various types of dentures available for men and women seeking a convenient and comfortable tooth replacement option. A conventional denture is custom-crafted and placed in the patient's mouth following extraction of any remaining teeth. This process typically requires a number of months while the tissues fully heal. The full denture is held securely in place using special denture adhesive or natural suction.
An immediate denture is inserted as soon as any remaining teeth are removed. With immediate denture, the patient does not have to spend any time without teeth during the healing period. Partial dentures are indicated when a patient has some healthy natural teeth remaining. It is custom-fitted to replace missing teeth in a way that feels comfortable and looks natural. Dr. Craybas and Dr. Crumb prefer not to use unsightly metal clasps to retain partial dentures when at all possible by utilizing precision attachments.
